Uniworld to debut new ‘Super Ship’  

Uniworld Boutique River Cruises is set to debut a new Europe-bound Super Ship in 2026.

Called the S.S. Emilie, the ship is a new build inspired by Austrian painter Gustav Klimt. It is named after his life partner and muse Emilie Flöge.

The latest Super Ship will join the S.S. Victoria (pictured), which is due to debut on the Rhine and Moselle rivers in 2024. The S.S. Elisabeth will also traverse the Rhine in 2025.

Uniworld has added five other Super Ships to its fleet since 2020. These include the Mekong Jewel on the Mekong in Vietnam and Cambodia; Aria Amazon on the Maranon and Ucayali rivers in Peru; S.S. São Gabriel on the Douro in Portugal; S.S. La Venezia on the Ventian Lagoon; and S.S. Sphinx on the Nile in Egypt.

Ellen Bettridge, President and CEO of Uniworld Boutique River Cruises, said: “We’re thrilled to introduce a brand-new ship to our fleet in 2026, just in time to celebrate Uniworld’s 50th anniversary.

“Our commitment to excellence is unwavering, and this outstanding new vessel reaffirms our dedication to providing the best and most luxurious ships on the rivers. We believe in delivering the highest level of quality to our guests, and our portfolio truly embodies the best of the best in the market.”
